Blizzard at the Dock

Blizzard at the Dock

Howling winds at my back, gusts exceeding 60 mph with blowing snow, made this scene even colder than it looks. I had to wait until a brief interlude between the big gusts to shoot steadily. Norman was in the throes of a full-fledged blizzard, an uncommon but precedented event in these parts. Such unseemly conditions certainly ruled out a leisurely afternoon of fishing or paddling the canoe!
